What Tools are Required?
Below is a short list of most of the items required to install a new ceramic tile or stone floor. A tile cutter can be rented at most rental yards and some tile stores. If you have a lot of cuts to make I would suggest renting a wet saw.

1. Ceramic tiles or stone - Both full tiles and trim tile
2. Tile Spacers
3. Setting material- thin set, mastic or adhesive
4. Sanded Grout for grout joints over 1/8 inch.
Non-sanded or wall grout for joints
5. Level
6. Rags
7. Sponges-get several large sponges
8. Notched trowel
9. Grout Float

When I choose a trowel, what size notch should I go for?
It depends on the ceramic tiles you use for the job. If the back of the tile is flat, a 1/4 inch should be enough. If you use heavily corrugated tiles, you might want to use a 3/8 of an inch notched trowel.
